Our research focuses on cross-cutting foundations of data science, including statistics, big data, machine learning, modelling, simulation, visualisation and cloud computing. The Institute supports data-driven research in various application domains such as astrophysics, particle physics, biology, meteorology, medicine, finance and healthcare social sciences.
Foundations of Data Science
At the Data Science Institute, advanced analytics and its applications are main research focuses, where we aim to enable the cross-fertilization of methods in different applied areas to develop new algorithms and build analytical applications that raise profound scientific and engineering challenges.
Strong industrial and academic collaborations are at the centre of the Institute's development. We focus on translating foundational and technological research into new services, products, and businesses. To this end we are building international partnerships across industry and academia.
